Ève Lamont

A seasoned filmmaker and camerawoman, Ève Lamont is a free spirit who dives into the heart of often hidden social realities. Her first documentary Des Squatteureuses (1988) on women squatters in Europe, received the Audience Award at the International Women's Film Festival in Montreal. Her film SQUAT! (2002) about the occupation of a building by homeless youth, received the award for best direction for a Canadian feature documentary at the HOT DOCS documentary festival. In Pas de pays sans paysans (2005), the filmmaker meets citizens and farmers who oppose agribusiness and cultivate differently. With L'Imposture (2010), she signs an intimate documentary on women who seek to leave prostitution. This was followed by Le commerce du sexe (2015), a hard-hitting dive into the commercial sex industry. His most recent film, Le chantier des possibles (2016), tells the story of a working-class neighborhood that advocates for an alternative vision of urban development.
